Today my humble city of Butuan celebrate its 48th chapter day (declaration of the town of Butuan as a city).

Please pray for the continued prosperity of my humble city. Please pray for its people, who are now going through difficult times. Also pray for our leaders that they mat realize that their position is to serve the people and not to corrupt our funds and our government.
Also pray that we will one day be exposed to Orthodoxy and that many will accept the True Faith, the True Church..

Please pray for my fellowmen...   :)

God bless...

In the Name of the Father, the Son an of the Holy Spirit...

For this parish and city, for every city and town, and for the faithful who live in them, let us pray to the Lord!

Lord, have mercy and enlighten them!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
